Seatbelt-less 6-Year-Old Does 0-60 Mph In 3.7 Seconds Behind Wheel Of VW Golf

A child in Britain was filmed behind the wheel of a VW Golf, not wearing a seatbelt, and being urged by an adult in the seat next to him to "show me what you've got."

In the video, it's clear that the boy can barely reach the pedals and see over the steering wheel.

He's not in a booster seat, not wearing a seatbelt, and is the only one controlling the vehicle. The passenger asks how old he is, and he says, "Six."

The pair aren't out in traffic, but have the car driving up and down an abandoned road.

The boy takes it for a few laps, driving around potholes and through a set of gate posts at a significant speed, with the passenger encouraging him to try the launch control feature.

There's someone else watching along the sidelines as well.

From his vantage point, we get a good view of just how well the child has mastered the car's launch control as he blasts off, revving the car up to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.

It's readily apparent that this isn't the boy's first time behind the wheel.

According to the Daily Mail, his father is a car dealer and he started teaching his son to drive when he was just 3, and the boy has driven a Range Rover as well.

The boy's uncle posted his exploits on social media.

On Facebook, the post has received more than two million views, 16,000 comments, and 39,000 shares.
